Arduino, the open-source hardware platform, announced the launch of a new low-code platform and modular hardware system for IoT development.

The combination of Mbed OS with Cortex-M IP in the new Arduino Portenta Family will enable developers to securely and easily develop and deploy IoT devices from prototype through to production,” said Charlene Marini, the VP of strategy for Arm’s IoT Services Group.

The new hardware, dubbed the Arduino Portenta H7, features everything you need to get started with building an IoT hardware platform. It also includes a crypto-authentication chip and communication modules for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy and LTE and Narrowband IoT.

Powered by 32-bit Arm microcontrollers, either the Cortex-M7 or M4, these low-power modules are for designing industrial applications besides edge processing solutions and robotics applications. The new H7 module is now available to beta testers, with general availability slated for February 2020.
